Whiff of Joy Challenge #121

Happy Saturday! I hope that your week-end is off to a great start! It is still quite cold over here and so, not much to do outdoors :( We are hoping that if the temperature rises by Sunday, we can go skiing as a family. We have tons of snow but when it is this cold, it just isn’t so much fun. The little ones get too cold……well….I do as well if truth be told!

Before I forget, I will be teaching over at Scrapbook Centrale next Saturday so for all of you who have been waiting for my next Copic Coloring class…I will teaching two! In the morning the Intro class and in the afternoon the Shading class.  Please contact the store for all the details and to reserve your spot. The calendar is not out yet but I thought I’d let you know! I will be doing 3 more classes in February too :)

As well, I finally had the chance to load up some cards on Ebay. I know it has been a while and I apologize. I hope to get more up in the next days!

This week’s challenge over at the Whiff of Joy challenge blog for this fortnight is:

Love is in the Air

A perfect theme for this time of the year and I had the perfect stamp to create a card with! Are you LOVING the WoJ January release? I know that I am going to get a lot of Valentine projects made using just this one release!

Henry with rose

I {heart} this image. It just speaks to me. He is adorable and tiny against that gorgeous and huge rose! The smile on his face reminds me of my munchkins when they have a little something to give to me :)

I was happy that this stamp lends itself so well to be cut out in a circle. I was able to use this Spellbinders die set that has had far too little use. My image was colored with Copic markers and then I went in here and there with prismacolor pencils to add some depth to the shading. The background was also created with the pencils and then I added some dots with a white gel pen. Amazing how that one little step just brightens up the whole thing!

The paper is from one of my all time favorite Basic Grey paper packs: Bittersweet. I have two almost full packs that I have been hoarding and quite frankly….I have to start using them because new paper keeps sneaking into my craft studio. It is a sickness.

I tucked a doily in behind the main image and die cut some leaves with a WoJ die to add to the sides. The tag was cut with another WoJ die and then stamped with two other WoJ stamps: one that adds the lines and then a sentiment. The brads are…..yes….Whiff of Joy and so it that gorgeous ribbon! I am so happy that Whiff of Joy is not stocking ribbon. It is a great weight and ties so perfectly. Love, love it!
